$200.USD 

Good small mottled gray nephrite perforated disc, circa Tang Dynasty or earlier. D: 2.4cm/.9in and thickness: 8mm/.22in. Lovely stone- please examine close ups where I have highlighted “tell tale” carving lines with red arrows of a genuine ancient piece. This was probably part of a series of center leftover cuts from a much larger Bi.

~Sold to the U.S., thanks a bunch!~ $250.USD 

Two fragments of a jade ornament, circa Tang or Liao Dynasties, of a Buddhist celestial being. Obviously these pieces have a lot of calcification but would make good study pieces for a serious jade collector. The workmanship is impossibly minute and fine on these, although it is difficult to tell from the photos, it is well contoured with a good three dimensional quality. See last enlargement for scale.


Liangzhu Jade Cong

Abhaya Asian Antiques
Tel/Fax 852-29847509


$300.USD 

Beautifully carved red Nephrite jade cong with carved bands and face. This piece is probably mid 20th century although copies from famous Neolithic sites like Liangzhu and Hongshan were commissioned as early as the Qianlong reign for discerning collectors. D: L: 5.6cm/2.2in and W: 2.2cm/.8in. This kind of jade is quite rare so much of the value in this piece lies in the stone as well as the workmanship.

$600.USD 

Fine and rare circa 6th CE slightly tapered cylindrical Pre Khmer agate bead with original gold end caps and clear band in the center. I acquired this about 13 years ago in Thailand; at that time I was told it came out of Cambodia. Recently I came across a photo reference for this type of bead- Khmer Gold: Gifts for the Gods: Emma Bunker and Douglas Lateford, which identifies this as pre 6th century which would make it either Chenla or Funan Kingdoms, and excavated in Banteay Meanchy Pro ...click for details

$120.USD 

Interesting set of six amber glass beads. These came out of Cambodia but are of Chinese manufacture and would date circa Song to Yuan (1000-1400CE) which coincides to the Khmer Empire when there was a lot of trade was carried on between these two kingdoms. I have two references for this kind of bead referring to them as to either Liao or Ming. These probably have a more prosaic function being buttons, but having said this are the only ones I have seen and given their fragility few ha ...click for details
